When Your Kids Need a Check Up…
Introducing kids to the dentist early on and having regular check-ups is important to ensure they look after their teeth as they grow up and continue to understand the importance of maintaining oral health. Whilst recent developments in UK laws require stricter regulations on products that can damage kids’ teeth, such foods and drink are still widely available and extremely addictive. Therefore, it is even more pressing to ensure your children’s teeth receive proper care. If you are looking for local Hayes family dentistry experts, you’ll feel comfortable and welcomed at Victoria Road dental surgery. Our dentists are great at making children feel at ease during their appointments, with a friendly demeanor and a careful and gentle touch.

When You Need a New Tooth…
Losing a tooth or even several teeth can really knock a person’s confidence, not to mention the loss can result in a sagging of the facial muscles, making the person look older. There are several options available depending on your budget to restore your mouth after tooth loss.
Dentures are false teeth usually made from comfortable plastic, that can fill the gaps in the mouth where teeth have been lost. Dentures can be removed easily, making them a more temporary measure than some of the other options available, and can be manufactured to fit perfectly in your mouth. They are also far more budget-friendly, costing between £250 and £500 for a set. To find out more about having dentures fitted, arrange a consultation with a member of our team who can discuss options with you.
Dental implants are permanent fixtures which allow false teeth to be attached to the bone of your jaw, acting like a regular tooth. Whether you are a suitable candidate for a dental implant depends on the condition of your bone and whether it can support an implant. Your dentist will be able to confirm this with you if you seek this treatment. Dental implants can be expensive, but unlike dentures will remain permanently in the mouth and will last as long as you look after it correctly, looking and feeling just like a natural tooth. To find out more about dental implants, speak to a member of our team.
When Your Teeth Aren’t As Healthy As They Should Be…
Sometimes, if a tooth gets infected, the only option left is for the dentist to perform a tooth extraction. While this sounds very painful, in fact, your dentist will use anaesthetic during the procedure to ensure you do not feel pain when the tooth is removed. You may experience some pain afterwards as you heal, which can be treated with painkillers. To find out more about tooth extraction, visit our page.
Root canal treatment is often given when a tooth has lost its vitality (died) or the pulp (the material at the core of the tooth) has become infected, to allow the tooth to remain in the mouth rather than needing extraction.
Wisdom teeth are usually the last of a person’s adult teeth to appear, at the very back of the mouth, usually in your late teens to early twenties. Provided they do not lead to overcrowding or other related problems such as infection in the mouth, wisdom teeth can be left. However, in several cases, the dentist may decide that removing them is the best option. Wisdom teeth removal is a fairly straightforward process that shouldn’t take longer than twenty minutes, and while you might experience some discomfort afterwards, this should soon disappear and you will no longer experience pain in that area and be less prone to problems or infections. If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, visit the Victoria Road Dental Clinic for a consultation to discuss the best way forward for you and your oral wellbeing.
Cavities in teeth occur when harmful bacteria found in food and drinks containing sugar damages the enamel surface of the tooth. If a cavity forms in your tooth it can make way for harmful bacteria and infection to enter the tooth, causing more serious problems to arise. Therefore, if you get a cavity, the dentist will usually recommend having it filled. Teeth filling is extremely common, with a recent survey reporting 66% percent of adults in the UK having had filling treatment. The process is simple and usually involves anaesthetic, leaving your mouth numb to allow the dentist to complete the filling without causing you much discomfort. You can choose from basic silver fillings to white composite fillings that are less noticeable in your mouth. Your dentist will discuss options with you before carrying out treatment.
